Airport In Wargames - Where

Sat Oct 28, 2006 5:04 pm

In the movie Wargames, don't laugh, there is a Horizon F-27 shown landing. It looks like BFI, so does the terminal...anyone know for sure?

Did QX ever serve BFI?

Royal,

According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WarGames :

"The exteriors were all filmed in western Washington state. The NORAD HQ set was built in the Cascades, and the Oregon airport was really at Boeing field. Goose Island is really Anderson Island in Washington (in the Southern part of the Puget Sound)."

My guess QX got in on it for the publicity.....Like how AS introduced their new identity in the movie Kindergarten Cop. Although maybe they did serve BFI at one time.

Ryan - thanks. I didn't have time to Google it...it was an 80s Cold War kind of night...Red Dawn and Wargames, back to back. Haha.
